Internationally known as The Fat Man, George Alistair Sanger’s influence is hard to overestimate. Through his work, his writings, the founding of think-tanks, organizations and communities, this “legendary game audio guru’s” fingerprints are all over much of what it means today to create game audio or listen to a game.

He received the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Game Audio Network Guild (GANG) in 2015.
